No, what I considered a misuse was not the tabs but the intended use of 
the SAL_INFOs as you described it in your Code-Review-1 comment at 
<https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/83319/> "Remove some excessive log 
formatting".  (The tabs are apparently a relevant part of how you intend 
to make use of those SAL_INFOs, given you -1'ed their removal.)  From 
this thread here it should be clear that it is OK to disagree with my 
considering it a misuse, and to continue with that practice there.
